NYC: Man arrested after brazen attempt to rape woman on New York subway platform

Police arrested a man on Sunday who allegedly attempted to rape a woman in a Manhattan subway station, a moment captured in a startling video that appeared to show him commit the act midday on Saturday.

Jose Reyes, 31, was arrested Sunday afternoon in East Harlem, police said, after attacking a 25-year-old woman who had exited the train at 11 a.m. Reyes allegedly followed her and then attacked her on the subway platform, bringing her to the ground.

“This heinous and horrendous act was interrupted by a good Samaritan who observed and got him to cease his behavior while subsequently videotaping the incident,” said New York Police Department Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison.
